effex: Music again (Music again)
I said I got to spin vintage film scores in my last post but, technically, Songza spun them for me.

I don't listen to the radio-radio, so other than at work (which specializes in a few specific genres), music discovery is rough for me. I tried Pandora, Last FM, whatever the others are, and they felt more like an echo chamber - nothing new, just more of what I plugged in.

Songza's different - the playlists are put together by people, not computer generated, and they have everything. Want to listen to vintage film scores? Tropicalia? Dubstep? Motown? 80s Punk Rock? Alt Country? K-pop? Want something to fit your mood (angsty, sexy, meditative, happy, bored) or activity (being creative, cleaning, going out, staying in, backyard campfire)?

I've loved everything I've heard so far, there's always something new to listen to, and if you're looking for great internet radio you can't do better.
effex: TV has the fun (TV has the fun)
Fuck, what was I going to post for today? Uh, I had therapy today, that went pretty well. Chicago is finally cooling the fuck off, GIVE ME ALL THE AUTUMN. I.... Oh!

The thing about iPads and MacBook Airs are that they are light and very convenient for watching Hulu/Netflix in bed. Too convenient. I've been watching old episodes of The Voice, because the singing is pretty and the braining requirement is 0, and 'one more episode/I'll just finish this battle' turns into 11pm, 12am, 1am.

So I'm instituting a 'No TV On The Bed On A Work Night' rule. It may need to expand to 'No TV On The Bed At All' or 'No Interneting On The Bed On A Work Night', because my self control is shot after 10pm.
